The Congress leader arrived in Sultanpur and held a road show from there to Gauriganj in Amethi before driving to the district magistrate's office to file his papers, Congress leaders said.
Sonia Gandhi has filed her papers from Rae Bareli constituency.
Rahul Gandhi, the incumbent member from Amethi, is locked in a three-cornered contest in Amethi, with the Bharatiya Janata Party fielding TV's 'favourite bahu' Smriti Irani and the Aam Aadmi Party Kumar Vishwas.
While Vishwas has been camping in Amethi for the last two months, Irani has also been in town for the last few days.
Both leaders have accused Rahul Gandhi of neglecting development in his constituency.
Amethi will vote May 7.
